Thank you to the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago & CityPASS for sponsoring our long weekend adventure in Chicago! As always, all opinions are my own. My husband Robin and I had such an awesome weekend in Chicago! I was traveling with a friend for Spring Awakening music festival, and Robin was in town for work […]
We had a wonderful weekend in Carmel, Indiana this past weekend, and it quickly became one of my favorite midwest cities! I absolutely loved everything about this town, from the adorable B&B we stayed in and the incredible food we sampled, to the plethora of activities the city offers and endless kindness of the residents. If you’ve never been to this Indianapolis suburb, you should add it to your list!
I’m not Catholic, so I didn’t feel like I had much of a reason to visit the Vatican, but “when in Rome” as they say, I thought it would be a great half-day trip! I would’ve been remiss to skip out on the heart of the Catholic faith, and I’m glad we decided to visit, […]

Tulip Time is a lovely festival that takes place each spring in Holland, which celebrates Dutch heritage, Dutch dancing, Dutch fashion, and of course iconic Dutch tulips.

Although we had to cut our trip short because I became extremely sick and needed to come home, we had such an incredible time in Mexico this past month! We were able to stay in 8 different cities and pass through a number of others, and it was an adventure unlike any other! I’d been […]
Querétaro has a vibrant arts and cultural scene, and they also have some incredible local dishes inspired by tradition and their unique climate. Tikua, a restaurant located right around the corner from Casa de la Marquesa Hotel (check out the review of this stunning colonial era mansion turned hotel here) perfectly embodies arts and culture […]
I’ve partnered with World Port Seafood to share new twists on some traditional Mexican recipes that have been passed down through my family. WPS sponsored this post by sending me a great selection of Ancient Grain Haddock Filets, Redhook® Beer-Battered Shrimp, Faroe Islands Salmon, and Omaha Steakhouse® Fries, and for this first post I’ll be […]
